    3 Alternative Themes you can use instead

    This year so everyone who signed up can get a chance to name a theme we are offering three alternative themes. You can you any of these in place of a monthly theme if you are stumped and need an alternative.

    Monique - Ugly Fabric Challenge

    Pick what you think is an ugly fabric (I know we all have at least one of them). I bet we can turn it into something pretty or funny. Can't wait until I see what you all do. If you have a small swatch left over include that with your gift so we will know which one started out ugly!

    Nwmnteacher - Log Cabins

    Log cabins; either the block, or something to use at a cabin, or cabin themed fabric.

    Zenatec - 4 Seasons

    This project should feature Seasons. Seasons are defined as something that has a cycle in some form for this theme. Seasons could include: winter, spring, summer, autumn, and fall but other seasons are ok too. Think cycles. Construction, planting, aging are some other examples.
    Women are Angels. When someone break's our wings we will continue to fly-usually on a broomstick.We're flexible like that.

    This is a great idea. Now if I get stumped I can pick from one of these.


      a couple of these could be combined with the main themes. 4 seasons would be hard to combine with the main themes but I think the other two could be mixed with some of the main themes. Log cabin block could be used with Augusts theme and ugly fabric challenge with any of the main themes.

      At least this is my view point.

      About this Group

      Membership is now closed for 2019.

      We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non-stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

      This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 3 items during the year.

      If you would like to join please "subscribe", "join". Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will receive a questionaire from the mod
